Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs reportedly face paying a R5 million fee if they want to land Black Leopards attacking midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase.
The 23-year-old is said to be Chiefs' number-one target after they missed out on Sibusiso Vilakazi, who joined Mamelodi Sundowns in a big-money move instead.
Ntshangase, who didn't go with the South Africa under-23 side to the Rio Olympics due to injury, is now fully fit and is eager to secure a transfer to the Premiership.
He has risen to prominence after some eye-catching displays for Lidoda Duvha in the National First Division - in 2014/15 he netted nine goals in 28 starts from midfield.
Nonetheless, it appears Amakhosi will have to fork out R5m if they are to secure Ntshangase's services.
A source told Soccer Laduma that Leopards won't sell the player unless their asking price is met, saying: "The club want R5 million for the player or they won't let him go.
"They believe that they can win promotion to the PSL with Siphelele in the team, so they will only sell him if it is worth their while."
